Visitors can learn more about the AAN in the "About" section, move to the "AAN News" area, "Top Stories from Altweeklies" area - can read a wide range of articles from member publications ("The Art of Canvassing" and "Self Storage and the World of Hoarders").

Visitors can use the interactive map of Europe to learn more about this process; allows users to turn on and off different layers on the map that document the spread of printing, paper mills, fairs, and trade routes in order to get a better sense of how this technology gradually spread.

What printing was like or how historical documents were made; significant impact printing has had on world history. This story is seldom told or preserved, even in the school systems. The process of re-discovery of these printing methods at the museum has also helped to uncover new understandings of the past and develop greater insights and appreciations of the inventors, philosophers and printers that have so shaped our current events. Research, publication and academic support are part of the museum's educational mission.

Publishers' Bindings Online 1815-1930: The Art of Books         
In another historical era, decorative bookbindings were commonplace and even if owners of such items were not aware of their symbolic importance, they still often treasured such volumes. As part of a unique partnership between the University of Alabama University Libraries and the University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries, close to 5,000 of these intriguing bookbindings are now available online from this site. It is the project's hope that its work "will strengthen the growing interest in and create broader awareness for this 'common' object called the book." Visitors to the site will want to browse the various bookbindings by subject or perform a more detailed search, if they so desire. The "Research Tools" section of the site also contains some brief biographies of noted binding designers in the 19th and early 20th centuries and this area of the site also promises a glossary in the near future.  Rounding out the site is ample documentation regarding the creation and development of the project, along with two reports presented to the funding agency, which in this case was the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

The owner of copyright has the exclusive right to reproduce, distribute, and, in the case of certain works, publicly perform or display the work; to prepare derivative works; in the case of sound recordings, to perform the work publicly by means of a digital audio transmission; or to license others to engage in the same acts under specific terms and conditions.

This site pays homage to their first 50 years, and it includes an interactive slideshow of some of their most notable covers, along with a timeline that offers the Voice's own unique perspective on various happenings within New York, such as the rise of punk and the career of Lenny Bruce.
